NOTES FROM MANHATTAN: HIGH LINE TO WTC

PELLI'S PLATINUM VISIONAIRE

At first glance, the glossy new 35-story condominium tower slicing into the lower Manhattan skyline doesn't stand out as a beacon of sustainable design.

NEW YORK ACADEMY OF SCIENCES

When you hear the words "academy of sciences" what do you think of? Musty rooms with dark wood paneling and overstuffed furniture? Curio cabinets filled with microscopes and specimens in formaldehyde? This isn't the image that the New York Academy of Sciences wanted its headquarters to project. — Published 2007.0509
